Move Over Emily Post.

This is the latest gem found among the piles of donated crap that we are sifting through:
Barbara Cartland's Etiquette for Love and Romance, published in 1984.
Here are some highlights:

1. What should you say if you accidentally call a man by another man's name?

2. If it is raining, should you hold your own umbrella or expect the man to hold it for you?

3. If you find yourself yawning when another person is talking to you, should you apologize or pretend it never really happened?

4. What ploys may be used to get a man's attention at a party? Should you drop something?

5. Is it proper to have dinner alone in a man's apartment?

How very timely, thanks Barbara.
